Knee osteoarthritis can’t be cured but we believe, with a long-term commitment to exercise, there is a better chance of living a more active life that is less affected by knee pain.

We’ve teamed up with two experienced physiotherapists to guide you on your rehabilitation and recovery journey:

Step 2

To help with this process, Charlie and Nick have created three exercise plans aimed at three groups

  • Early stage: for those that haven’t exercised much before or not for a long time, and have higher levels of discomfort during movement, 
  • Intermediate: for those that have been moderately active in recent years and have less discomfort with day-to-day activities, and 
  • Advanced: for those that have been regularly active for many years and may have used a gym to help keep fit in the recent past. 

Step 2

Step 3

To help decide which exercise group you are in, Charlie and Nick have designed a short questionnaire.

Access the questionnaire below and answer the questions as honestly as you can. You will then be directed to which level of exercise with which you should start.

These questions are adapted from the Oxford Knee Score questions 1, 4, 5, 9, and 12, and from the MSK-HQ questions 9, 11, and 13.

Each person will require different amount of exercise to achieve optimal results. We recommend working with an experienced clinician to help individuals with the exercise to meet their needs and capabilities. 

The exercise dose parameters are merely a guide and should not be considered medical advice.
